Sci-Fi Radio

Sci-Fi Radio was an anthology of magazine short story adaptations, with a pretty good choice of the stories.

These were recorded off the radio and vary in quality.

Subject: Don't be put off by first couple plays
I've listened to a few of these now & I think some of the lukewarm reviews here are because first couple plays are unconventional & not easy to get into, especially the first one, "Voices Lost in Calling". It's not only quirky & "experimental", it's also not very good. Unfortunate that it's the first track in the collection. Must turn a lot of people away without ever hearing any of the rest, which is a shame because overall this is a great collection with a few absolute gems. Track 3, "Dark Benediction", is particularly excellent & goes a step beyond the current zombie movie craze, even though the story it's based was written years before the Zombie Apocalypse was even a glimmer on the mass consciousness radar.

I agree with other commenters who compare it to the mind web series. The quality of the recordings is excellent!
Great addition! Thanks!

Subject: Good series
I've only listened to a few. I downloaded all. Several I couldn't get into, some were good. Good production, good sound quality. Houston, Houston, was very interesting... I'd recommend. If you don't like an episode, try another.

Subject: Inconsistent
as another reviewer said, the sound quality is great. i do think that there are *some* good stories here... i personally enjoyed "i'm scared" and "houston, houston, do you read".

Subject: okay
I only tuned in a little. The first episode was pure 100% repetitious abstract. Im not saying it was bad, but... !

Another episode called The Rose exploited the music box melody of 'Beautiful Dreamer' so much, it became nauseating.

I might listen more another time. This show isn't pulling me in.

Subject: sound quality good,; stories not
I was simply bored by several of these - so much so, that although I had downloaded them all, I deleted the rest unlistened.

Subject: SCI RADIO
The prior reviewer has a good ear for radio shows. This is a series from NPR broadcast 1989-90.

Subject: a great scifi series, with quality science fiction stories
This seems to be from public broadcasting, and it's similar the Mindwebs (another good one in the Archive). Mindwebs is a dramatic reading of real science fiction stories, these are plays based upon real scifi classics.
